You will need to contact the Surgery Center or Hospital where your surgery is scheduled for more information.
If you’re scheduled with the Arizona Specialty Surgery Center, you must complete your test within 10 days or less of your procedure. Results must be received no later than 12 noon the business day prior to the procedure to be able to continue with your surgery. Only NAAT, PCR and antigen tests are allowed.
Due to the nature of our trauma practice, surgery times are provided the day before your scheduled surgery when our lineups are confirmed. You will receive a call with this information one (1) day prior to your scheduled surgery.
